Course Summary

The chemistry of biological processes is the basis of all life on planet Earth. On this course you will develop an understanding of the processes that are core to biological chemistry. We will explore aspects such as biosynthesis, retrosynthetic analysis, molecular biology and the principles of drug development. We will also look at the applications of biological chemistry in catalysts, synthetic methods and spectroscopy, giving our graduates an edge when looking for employment in academia or industry.

Distinctive features:

Available on a one year full-time or three year part-time basis.
Explore real life biological systems as well as applications of biological processes, for example in catalysis.
Specialise in an area of interest to you with an end of course research project.
Some overseas academic placements may be available for the research project.
